Suzuki will offer MotoGP special edition for the Gixxer SF from the start

A few days ago, we had leaked the brochure of the upcoming Suzuki Gixxer SF (Introducing Level:Pro) which is a full faired bike based on the Gixxer. Now, we have managed to get clear images of the brochure which helps us see the specifications clearly. One interesting aspect seen is that the bike will be offered in a special paint scheme from the word go and is likely to be priced above the normal variants. Suzuki wants to cash in on the popularity of MotoGP and grab the attention of enthusiasts.

While the Gixxer SF remains almost identical to the Gixxer on which it is based, it weighs 4 kgs more than it which is due to the addition of the fairing, However, the weight increase seems negligible considering the Pulsar RS 200 weighs 20 kgs more than the Pulsar 200 NS on which it is based on! This would ensure minimal difference in terms of performance and the top speed might be higher due to the addition of an aerodynamic fairing. The bike sports some interesting elements such as LED tail lamps, adjustable rear mono-shock suspension and an exhaust which looks really different.

Power comes from the same 154.9cc, single-cylinder engine which generates 14.8 PS and 14 Nm, matched to a 5-speed gearbox. Performance should be identical to the street-fighter version and the sharing of parts and mechanicals will help Suzuki price the Gixxer SF more aggressively, expect an on-road price of under a lakh.

The Suzuki Gixxer SF will be the most affordable full-faired bike in India which gives it a huge advantage over its nearest competitor, the Yamaha R15 (no direct competition though). In a country where people love faired bikes and appreciate affordable machines, the Gixxer SF stands at an advantageous position. The motorcycle would be offered in three regular colours which are – Blue, White and Black, there are rim stripes too. The MotoGP edition is based on the Blue coloured bike and gets a few visual changes including Suzuki stickers on either side which runs under the tank. It will not get any mechanical changes to suit its name though.
